Elaine Chao broadcasts error

The ever perfectly-coiffed Barbie doll Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao today sent out a historically inaccurate email commemorating the "55 delegates to the Constitutional Convention" who met to sign the Constitution. Except that it was only 41. And three refused to sign.

Although, to be fair, it probably wasn't the impeccable Chao who sent out the department-wide email but rather a hapless flack, who Chao will proceed to publicly flog.

Or maybe the DOL will just send out an update a month later and adjust the number downwards to reflect reality, which is what they do with all the "job creation" numbers on a monthly basis.

Wonkette has the scoop.

    I disagree.

    I think her hairstyle is more reminiscent of Mary Tyler Moore, which apologies with MTM.

    I meant "with" apologies...
